St. Raphael Catholic School is often referred to as a community. A community of strength, faith, knowledge, and passion for our beliefs. This core foundation is what the school and families are trying to instill in the children. Being part of the St. Raphael community is what makes this school special. The talented, caring, highly skilled, and dedicated faculty are exceptional and it is also what sets us apart.
When the Diocese of Joliet and the State of Illinois evaluated St. Raphael School they said,
"The faculty is exceptional. All staff is state certified and many teachers have masters degrees and beyond. The faculty also includes many auxiliary staff including resource teachers, teaching assistants, and a school counselor. All teachers use techniques that are varied and effective. The longevity of service of the faculty and staff reflects dedication to the school and to their ministry."
